·        HOME MADE DESSERTS BUFFET – Bring your most decadent, most beautiful, most scrumptious HOME MADE dessert.  No store bought this time ladies. Trifles, layered desserts, bring on the delicacies!  

Hanging Quilts—Please bring your LABELED quilts.  They may have been made as a result of a guild class, small quilts from Susan Cleveland class, small quilts from Julia’s silo art quilt class, challenge quilts, friendship quilts, medallion quilts, Art quilts of all sizes, fractured quilts—The upstairs of the Trotter has a balcony railing that will need to be filled with quilts. We’d rather have an abundance to choose from than not enough.  If your quilt does not have a hanging sleeve, we will use clothes pins or binder clips to hang it, so bring what you have.  If you are planning to complete a 25 x 25 Celebration of 25 years of MQA, you still have time.
Diane has the PTQ quilt racks.  MQA has some as well.
Commercial Dispatch will be contacted about the MQA Outstanding Quilters being honored.
PARKING:  Friday, pull up to the 5th street upper level entrance, unload, and then go park in the free parking beside the Trotter and behind the former Gilmer.  Leave the spaces in front for loading and unloading. FRIDAY the “meter maid” will chalk mark tires and write tickets.  Saturday park your vehicle at the soccer complex, the farmers market, or behind the Law Offices next door to Zachary’s.

Opportunities for the Log Cabin Quilt and the Featherweight will be priced as follows:
$2 per single ticket                          $5 for 3 tickets             $10 for 10 tickets

Time to select a slate of officers to serve in 2017.  The nominating committee-- Julia, Carol, and Diane—will present nominees at the October meeting.

Annette and her team gave us a preview of MQA Friday evening skits.

Julia had Studio Art Quilt Associates Trunk show from around the world on display for all to feast the eyes upon; beautiful pieces of art, each one.
